    What you stated appears to be trying to convince others they should be driving your car as well as their own and take evasive maneuvers to avoid you if you make a mistake. Either that or perhaps you think we should all just get out of your way, if we see you in the rear view. It appears you think others should take responsibility for being a victim of poor racecraft, especially when it's yours.

    You asked the question, of another driver, the same question every rape victim asks themselves after they've been violated. To my knowledge, this is called transference. You were trying to transfer your responsibility for your actions, to make the victim responsible for the results.

    I'll quote it again, just in case you've forgotten what you wrote.

    I'll end my participation in this particular discussion here. Yes, unfortunately, like you, I'll keep doing it my way, as it has worked for me for the last 30 years.

    It's hard to explain fully or to convince most people who does not have real world experience of racing sometimes. I have tried at certain occasions to explain and failed. They will just have to learn over a longer period of time that being able to protect yourself on track is much more efficient than quarrelling over things "by the rules" after crashes happened and race is lost.

    all this dodging bad racecraft debate has got me upset, but in a different way. Everyone is saying things like 'so n so years of experience bla bla'..great, it seems if everyone is a bleeping race car driver and im stuck as a bleeping delivery driver..

    Soo jealous i could cry

    Thanks guys! I've got the sponsor list updated! :)

    If we keep getting more platinum sponsors, I'm going to have to think of another cool gift to include. :tup:

    Excluding @goofytyler's maybe, we're just shy of halfway to the $2000 goal. Let's get some more sponsors to help out this guy:

    What you fail to understand is this is a video game governed by a different set of rules that state contact is NOT allowed.

    You have no idea who here has track experience and who does not. So stop with the "they just don't understand" rhetoric. What you don't get is, we understand your thought process, we just do not happen to think it is appropriate here or on the track.

    Running into the left rear of someone's car after they have initiated turn in is YOUR fault...everytime. And saying things like "it has worked for me here and in real life for years". Well apparently it hasn't worked as well you thought.

    I wish there was some kind reputation system like joby or someone mentioned a long time ago...

    Leaving a swath of destruction in his wake, he drives on, oblivious to the...

    The pros will wreck each other and go on camera right afterward and say "That's racin' boys, checkers or wreckers". That's not what this club is about....we all know that. This club is about insurance claims racing. Driver behind is always at fault. If you make contact...the next thing you do should be to lift off and make sure it doesn't happen again.

    yes, as i re read everything very carefully and it seems things are being taken out of context anyhow.

    BUT- Who else is ready for the all clear, so we can see the new combos, if my prize C remains, and it ends with me picking a car, i have a pretty high dollar one in mind that provides the people the power they have been craving :)

    I apologize for the language I have used, I thought I would help end this but not when I got woken up by the cold middle of the night.

    All I am trying to say is we focus on driving smart and out of trouble during the race despite some bad racecraft out there that can jeopardize us and we can then file IRs per the rules after the race. That way we can also improve our situation awareness if someone is about to divebomb or t-bone us, avoid it and have a cleaner race overall for everyone else and not end in a potential cluster. That has been our goal has it not?

    Moving on.


    :tup: almost any car :eek:
    let's get one of those fast ones for a change of pace!

    Well, I wouldn't get too set on a pick as it looks as if the prizewinners will be changing.

    By the way guys,
    Disclaimer: This is purely a speculation.
    I noticed something about the tire rule and it popped out at me when I was playing with cars that can go with Apricot Speedway (or whatever the official name is).

    The tire rule we have is giving a slightly grippier tire for the cars like the M3 CSL, I went to try out the RUF RGT on sports soft (it could be on sport mediums as @jobyone pointed out later). These grippier tires make the car roll too much in the corner with the given suspensions and it has been exposed by all the esses on this track making it very tricky to keep the car straight and fast.

    From a technique purist stand point, this is a good challenge and a good way to practice smoothness.

    At the same time I find it frustrating and tiring as you always have to be on your toes with the feel of the car.

    All the rear engined and mid engined cars are a lot tamer now too compared to the beginning of GT6, have been too busy practicing Snail combo's to notice that till now. But yeah I can totally feel the weight in the rear compared to GT5

    Guys, the discussion about race craft or the lack there of is over right now. If you have the desire to keep beating a dead horse, do it in the form of a private conversation.

    Don't lift mid corner. I tried the Lancia Stratos at HSR last night testing for DTC Snail and I didn't make it through the first tight left hander before it came around on me. But then drive the NSX RM...which was fantastic in GT5...and it understeers like a FF car now. I don't get it.
